Categories and redirects[edit]


Template talk:R from fictional character#Two auto-populated categories

By the way, the latter is one of the 72 subcats in the former. They are siblings, too, and two of only three! subcats in Category:Fiction-based redirects to list entries.

Do we really have only 10 redirects from fictional places? (Template {{R from fictional place}} has been transcluded only 10 times, so that the auto-populated cat Redirects from fictional places contains only 10 pages.) Anyway, that cat should be another subcat in Category:Fiction-based redirects to list entries, I believe, as the latter is not really about lists.

Middle-earth stand apart from unique in our coverage of fiction? Perhaps not uniquely, as "Anime and manga" and "Comics" may have similar status; see eg Redirects by topic. --P64 (talk) 17:08, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Categorization#Clarification needed

The software doesn't provide any special tools for informing readers that some incoming redirects are substantial, or displaying categories in which those redirects have been placed. Nor have we developed any equivalent practices using the general tools that are available --effective handmade links to those redirects. So the substantial categorization of redirects does not function for upward navigation.
For instance, the redirect Janet Ahlberg is in cats British children's book illustrators and Kate Greenaway Medal winners. Our article about her, Janet and Allan Ahlberg, is not in those categories, nor does it provide any related notice, much less provide wikilinks. Editors as well as readers inevitably stumble; such articles are likely to be placed in categories that duplicate their incoming redirects, and deleted from those categories, by successive editors. (At the moment Janet and Allan Ahlberg is in her 1944 births and 1994 deaths categories. It is in the writers category, correctly by all accounts because she and he wrote separately, and also jointly.)

One vote cast on behalf of online poll[edit]

National Baseball Hall of Fame

The sports website Deadspin announced in November that "We'd Like to Buy Your Vote"—that is, to arrange for eligible writers to cast their ballots on behalf of a poll it would conduct online.[1] Such an arrangement was completed with one voter, Miami Herald columnist and ESPN radio and TV host Dan Le Batard, who remained anonymous until the official results of the election were announced in January. In exchange for a cash donation to charity, he completed his ballot according to the collective "vote" of those who participated in the December poll at Deadspin.[2] One day after the website revealed "our voter" and published his statement, on January 9 the BBWAA announced that it had suspended Le Batard for one year and had permanently revoked his eligibility to vote for the Hall of Fame.[3] ESPN ombudsman Robert Lipsyte reviewed the "caper" one week later.[4]

Phoenix books notes[edit]

0. Talk:Sean O'Hagan (journalist)#Phoenix Books

1. Talk: The End of Time#Publication data

draft reply 2014-04-14

Regarding the English-language eds, I agree except that we should give both subtitles even if we learn that one was not first.
Phoenix generally publishes paperback editions Weidenfeld & Nicolson Ltd books, where WN was independent to 1991 and constituted the core of The Orion Publishing Group --or core of its backlist, books in progress, ed. staff, established writers-- from its establishment (presumably under some legal name that begins 'Orion') in 1991 --subsequently under Hachette and Lagardère SCA.
I don't yet see that we need a page for the Phoenix (British imprint), except one or more redirects to Weidenfeld & Nicolson, Orion Publishing Group, maybe elsewhere too.
For what's worth, template {{Lagardère}} now displays pagenmames that include four steps down -- Lagardère Group / Hachette (publisher) / Orion Publishing Group / Weidenfeld & Nicolson -- not now down to Phoenix. --and the word 'Phoenix' now appears only three and four steps down, in the two pages that the preceding paragraph links directly.
The expansion of our one-line Orion-Phoenix stub (version Oct 2010) two years ago ([ Jun 2010 diffs) was unfortunate. As that Phoenix Books is not related, the Stub should have been overwritten. Also as one of the four listed books was a paperback reissue by Orion-Phoenix rather than a Phoenix Books publication.
some pages whose interrelation, and whose use in piped links, is troubling: Little, Brown and Company; Little, Brown Book Group; Hachette (publisher)
